After the invention of the web in 1990, internet users who were not native English speakers reached 5 percent in summer 1994, 20 percent in summer 1998, 50 percent in summer 2000, and 75 percent in summer 2015. The internet saw the rise of 'linguistic democracy'. Many dedicated people helped promoting their own language and culture, or other languages and cultures, while often using English as a 'lingua franca'. In a short time, they made the web truly multilingual, with new media, bookstores and libraries, plurilingual websites, language-related resources, multilingual dictionaries and encyclopedias, publications in several languages, and translation software. This book is based on 100 interviews conducted during fifteen years in Europe, America, Africa and Asia. Also available in French and Spanish.
